Road accident is the most unwanted thing to happen to a road user, though they happen quite often. The most unfortunate thing is that we don’t learn from our mistakes on road. Main cause of accidents and crashes are due to human errors like, over speeding, drunken driving, distractions to driver, red light jumping, avoiding safety gears like seat belts and helmets, non-adherence to lane driving and overtaking in a wrong manner. Various national and international research has found these as most common behaviour of road drivers, which leads to accidents. Finally, if we don’t learn by our mistakes, we should learn by others while using road so that we may escape such ill-fated accident.
